This is what I ordered from Germany, and she kindly found and ferried home, fending off the advances of feral knitters far and wide!
- 2 balls of Geniale by Schachenmayr nomotta. It's 50% merino 50% acrylic, and is basically a knitted tape. I love the olive green - purple - blue colours. This is a trick inclusion - no, it's NOT sock yarn!
- The Opal looks innocuous, but is in fact CRAZY yarn. The socks will knit up looking as if there's cool tyre tracks printed on top of the base pattern. Opal Crazy, Colour 1904.
- 2 balls of Regia Mosaik Color, one in pinks/oranges/browns for me (5565), and one in blues/greens/browns for Hubby (5558). They knit up very nicely - see? With only 1 ball of each, they'll need to be ankle socks, or I suppose I could add solid coloured Patonyle for ribbing, heels, and toes...
Not in this pic are 2 balls of lovely tigery red and black sock yarn for Dotter, which she is knitting into socks as I speak! She will hopefully post pics on her Blog :)
I am actually making some progress on my mother's vest again. I must admit I don't much like this yarn, it sheds fibres over me while I'm knitting. But I shall persevere. The pattern is pretty easy to remember, so it's good TV knitting.
Dale over at Stitch'n Time at Mawson has very kindly put some samples of my Knitting Art cards on display under the glass counter. She won't place an order with me until there is 'demonstrated interest' from her customers. So if you're over that way, and feel so inclined, do hunt them out :)
In breaking news - Lulu has got out at Craft ACT, and tried to make off with a necklace (I think it's one of Olivia's creations)! You have to check it out... I'm still laughing!
